Drive confident.

Rear view camera

The rear-view camera makes parking easier by emitting an audio signal as well as displaying the view behind the car with reference lines to help you line up your car to a parking space.

Driver alert system

If several erratic steering movements happen one after the other, the Driver Alert system recommends taking a break via visual and acoustic signals to the driver and even intervene in critical driving situations.

Emergency City Braking

This system takes intelligent control of your driving speed by automatically braking if the sensor detects the risk of a collision.

Engines

The Polo range has no less than seven petrol and two diesel engines, all featuring BlueMotion Technologies including a Start/Stop function and Battery regeneration (recuperation – energy recovery during braking) and varying in power from 60 PS up to 192 PS whilst delivering plenty of torque. The final petrol engine powers the GTI, and its manual 1.8 litre TSI 192 PS engine can accelerate the GTI from standstill to 62mph in 6.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 146mph where the law permits.

Efficiency

The entry level petrol engines are both three cylinder 1.0 litre units producing 60 PS and 75 PS. There are two further three cylinder engines in the range, the 1.0 litre TSI petrol engine with 95 PS that powers the BlueMotion and the 1.0 litre 110 PS. Three four cylinder TSI engines follow; the 1.2 litre 90 PS and the BlueGT’s 1.4 litre TSI ACT 150 PS that utilises innovative ACT (Active Cylinder Technology) which, when driving with an engine speed of between 1,000 and 4,000rpm, two of the four cylinders can be completely and imperceptibly deactivated to help optimise the engine’s efficiency.
